Missing sailors were found in a huge SOS on the sand of an island in the Pacific Ocean.

Three missing sailors have been rescued off the coast of Pikelot Island in the Pacific Ocean after their ship ran out of fuel, with a huge "SOS" inscription written on the sand on the shore, The Guardian reported.

A US-Australian military plane found the three shipwrecked on the shores of a remote small island about 370 kilometers from where their vessel was blocked. According to rescuers, all three are in good condition and without visible injuries


They were reported missing three days earlier after their seven-meter boat stranded on the high seas.

US authorities on the Mariana island of Guam received the signal on Saturday after the crew was unable to complete its 42-kilometer route between the atoll islands of Polulat and Pular.

Her Royal Highness's warship Canberra sailed between Australia and Hawaii and received a distress signal. A day later, a Canberra helicopter spotted the giant SOS sign inscribed on the sandy shores of Piquelot. The distressed sailors immediately received food and fresh water, as well as first aid to determine their condition.

Pikelot Island is an uninhabited coral atoll, less than half a kilometer long and richly forested. The island is home to nesting seabirds and turtles.
